Hong Kong is the hub of Southern China, as well as a major contributor to the economies of the wider East Asian region. With a rich cultural background, a well-established socio-economic institutional framework, and a new identity as a Special Administrative Region in a growing Chinese economy, Hong Kong benefits from being at both the centre and the head of rapidly developing Asian economies.
Real estate and construction industries have been major components of Hong Kong’s economy since the 1970s. With continuing commitment from the government, as well as investment from international consortia, demand for more sophisticated real estate and construction services is rapidly increasing as urban development in the city advances. As the economy develops, the real estate and construction industries are also becoming increasingly intertwined with other sectors of the economy. Graduates with backgrounds in these other sectors are finding it increasingly important to equip themselves with value-added knowledge in the real estate and construction fields.
